I incorporate an assignment from PBS NewsHour into my hyperdocs lesson plan which prompts students to write a short news article for the PBS @NewsHour Student Voices Blog. A link to a consent form is included for students to have their work published on the PBS blog. 

The article is about student's thoughts on their state and local governments response to the coronavirus outbreak, and their own ideas for what governments should do going forward. The EdPuzzle video in my lesson covers my state of California, but you could insert any video into EdPuzzle you like when you copy and edit the document. :)
